You’ve probably heard the phrase, ‘Start with the market, not the product.’ It means that you shouldn’t create a product (which is expensive and time-consuming) without first making sure there will be customers who will buy it — and in enough numbers to make it worthwhile.

How neat! This makes me a bit more interested in maybe starting my own blog. Maybe for the wrong reasons though. (; Plus I’d probably have to spend time building a trusting reader base before I can start recommending them products. Hm, maybe someday… (I know, I know — “abolish someday”)
Chris is right….i have seen this article 8 moths ago, after searching the net for how to start a online business without investing to much money. Since then i have made an amazon site and are making some money already.

I have at least 40 hrs/week that I can dedicate to this process (I’m 55 and need my rest). Thank you, however for posting such a detailed system.

I’m a content marketer at LiveChat with the 4 years of experience in the SaaS universe. When I’m not writing, then you can find me traveling, watching Netflix, shopping and spending time with my dog, Vincent. I have an undying love for vegetarian food, yoga and meditation.
For the structure of these articles I like to target a frequently searched keyword such as “Cyber Monday (My Niche) Discounts” etc. because I know people search for “Cyber Monday” and “Black Friday” millions of times each year but they also search a longer form version like “Cyber Monday (My Niche) Discounts” as evidenced by the above traffic graph from one of my Amazon sites

When you write products reviews you should know more about them, than your average site visitors. Make sure you provide an honest description and accurate information. If a merchant offers a free trial, make sure to sign up and test it.
The fit must be right between you and the merchant who is going to benefit from your promotional efforts, or it simply won’t work. The easiest way to begin with affiliate marketing is to select an affiliate network.
